Gompertz<U+2013>Makeham intensity function.

The intensity function (or hazard function) for the Gompertz-Makeham law of mortality distribution is defined as $$h(x) = \alpha e^{\beta x} + \lambda$$ with \(\alpha, \beta, \lambda \in {R}_+\).

Usage
gompertz(alpha, beta, lambda = 0)
Arguments
alpha

Non-negative real parameter.

beta

Non-negative real parameter.

lambda

Non-negative real parameter.

Details

A C++ version of this function is available. See vignette('IBMPopSim_cpp') for more details.
